Stem Cell Screening Update

Hi everyone!

Rob is in the process of going through appointments and tests to prepare for his stem cell transplant. 

We are still waiting on the bone marrow tests and PET scan results from last week.

Today was the surgeon and the ophthalmologist.

The surgeon said Rob’s bone looked tremendous, which is a great sign that the chemo is working! They are thrilled that Rob is a stem cell candidate! This is the exact response they were hoping for when they first saw Rob in September. The surgeon will see Rob in six months after he recovers from the stem cell transplant.

Rob also got a good report from the ophthalmologist. We have a much deeper appreciation for the simple, “everything looks good, see you next year” kind of appointments. πŸ˜‰

Coming up: 

Tuesday is a busy day, with heart and lung tests, labs, nurse visit and social worker appointment. The transplant coordinator is helping us navigate the schedule that day. I’ll probably be saying this often, but we are beyond thankful for his knowledge and help. πŸ™‚

I’ll post an update as soon as we know results from the bone marrow test and PET scan, and after the appointments and tests on Tuesday. 

Thank you, Keep Pounding Rob team, for helping Rob Keep Pounding!!

We would be lost in this crazy journey without your love and support!!
